passenger side mirror on a "bug" that did'nt come with one by drilling a hole 
in the same location on the passenger side door and that there was already a 
threaded nut under the door skin from the factory. I was just wondering if 
anyone knows if this would also hold true for the type 3's as well, as i would like 
to use the mirror if possible.  >>

I don't think there is a nut tack welded to the inside of a t-3 door. You'll 
need to come up with something in order to use it. You might get lucky and 
find one for a bug on the Samba, as some mirror kits come with one, wether or not 
you need it. Or you could fond someone scraping a damaged door, and get them 
to cut the weld nut for you. I've been thinking about adding a mirror on the 
right door of my Notch, but it doesn't have the nut either. I've got a door I'm 
going to use as a donor for mine though. I hope this helps.
